End of Summer ?

To day it has been a beautifull day. The sun was shining from a blue sky.It was a great day for a walk.But I'm afraid it is one of the last summerdays, last nigth it was 2 degrees bellow zero.So I have to realize the winter are not far away.......
Some days ago I got a great parcel from Margaret. She send me some thimbles from Australia. One with the Australian Flag and the other with The Sturt's Desert Pea flower on. It is the National flower of the South Australia.I have seen it in Australian Magasines and now I have learn about it. It is so great to learn new thing from new frends on the net. ;-) She even send me a tea towel with poto of Ayers Rock, which I have learnd a little of before, and The Olgas ,who I never have heard of before.... So now I wounder... Why name a mountain Olga which are a well known womans name in Norway.... Hm... I want to say a big Thank You Margaret, the parsel are so great. ;-)
I have to show you that my sew-area are ready. I have got the cabinet and some shelf.I even got my "bag-tree" in place.I love to make bags, but I'm not so clever to use them. I allways have some new bags on my mind.....
I have had time to do some stitchery last week. I manage to do block two of the Quiltmakers. And september block of Noah's Ark.
Also I have been busy with bags and purses. I'm a Stitcher's Angel and have busy making some great bags from pattern made of May Britt and Natalie.I love them both and decide to make two of May Britts. One fore me and one fore my secret stitching friend.... Now I'm thinking about what to fill it with. I will use it as my last parcel to her.The little purse with the butterflies are a kit from Jordbærstedet. A great idea, easy and fast to make.The little purse with some red on are a gift I got when I was at the Fair some time ago. But can you see the little mouse.I just love him......I think it is a he.( he told me so) I got the pattern from a Japanese book. I can use him to carry thimble, there are an opening on his back. I have to make more mices, he need some pals. ;-)
Yesterday I got mail,great items from Panduro. Some new Tilda stitcheries and a great tin.It was a MUST have. Something every Quilting lady needs..... Don't you agree ;-)

Untill next time....Have some great sewing time.

Mount Olga is the highest mountain in the range of mountains called the Olgas, actually they are rock formations like Ayers Rock. The Olgas look like heads so they were given people's names. Your stitchery and sewing room look wonderful. We too have cold mornings and sunny days, and we are in Spring. LOL
